The goal of this service as an Educational Advocate is to provide parents and guardians who are lost in the overwhelming system of 504 plans, IEPs, meetings, school jargon, and educational services with the peace of mind in knowing that their children will receive the best possible outcome. This means ensuring that the programs and services put in place for your children will ensure maximum developmental growth in all deficit areas. As an accomplished teacher with 11 years of experience in a variety of school systems, I can assure you that my knowledge and expertise will bring you the peace of mind you need.
Albert Einstein wrote, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” This quote resonates with me because it seems that, many times, our children are in a situation where they are fish being judged by their ability to climb a tree. In other words, our children might receive a free public education, but it is not appropriate for their specific needs and skill sets. I am here to help you challenge this conundrum and advocate for your child!
